The Rubberbandits’ New Song Tackling Suicide

“You’ve to hold on to hope. You are important to someone Sonny, so put down the rope.”

You wouldn’t think it by their appearance, wearing plastic bags on their faces but The Rubberbandits have become a vital voice for social issues today.

Sunday September 10th marked as World Suicide Prevention Day, so the comedy duo released their new song, Sonny. This hard hitting song tackles the social issues our country struggles with around suicide.

It is written and performed by Blindboy Boatclub and Mr Chrome.

The song opens with, “He isn’t lonely or addicted to drugs. He doesn’t owe his mother’s money to thugs. He’s not an alcoholic. He isn’t depressed and he’s going to break a lot of hearts …”

It ends with the powerful message: “You’ve to hold on to hope. You are important to someone Sonny, so put down the rope.”

Written, produced and performed by Rubberbandits.

This video obviously moved a lot of people and some took to twitter to express how they felt about it.
